1945 Radio News

Published 1945


News from 1945.

I usually share these via torrent but I don't think all these files are available on archive.org so here's a 1945 news file dump. Plus some V-Discs.

Any typo or error is mine.

...if you like my uploads / Demonoid torrents please consider donating to a veteran's charity of your choice, thank you. Especially if you intend to make $ or otherwise profit from these files. :D

Subject: Great clips! Are they public domain by any chance?
These are all amazing clips - thank you for uploading them!

I'm currently doing research for a documentary about the Battle of Iwo Jima, and the clips from February and March of '45 are so enlightening! I'd love to be able to use them in the documentary if at all possible. Do you know whether they (especially 15 through 21) are public domain? Or, if not, might you know who owns the rights to them, or how to find out? Any information in that regard would be greatly appreciated. I can be reached at bsswrap@gmail.com

Thanks again!

Subject: Reference lost on me
In Norman Corwin's "On A Note Of Triumph" (1945-05-13), there's a particularly dramatic passage beginning at 38:40 where different voices are frantically shouting lessons that we've learned from World War II.

One of them is, "We’ve learned that a newspaper with a big circulation right at home can lie with a straight face seven days a week and be as filthy and fascist as a handout in Berlin!"

I'd love to know which newspaper Corwin was referring to. So far I haven't been able to turn up anything.

Subject: Outstanding! Thanks for Posting
Our host has done a marvelous thing! Wowser! I'm listening to an Admiral refrigerator commercial with a tag to save paper for the war effort. That's one small example. I'm struck by the literate, conversational manner of Douglas Edwards. It's not to clipped gotta-say-it-fast five minutes of news we get now. Love those 15 minute newscasts. There is a local station here that actually reports a 15 minute newscast, complete with funeral announcements. It is rare. We have lost a LOT by having to cut down the news today. Again, thanks for sharing. If you have more, please post more.

Great selection of news broadcasts. One correction though, the CBS World News dated April 5, 1945 should actually be April 15. It was the day FDR was buried, he died on the 12th and was buried on the 15th.
